of this committee routinely voted to raise the debt ceiling during those years even though the money for the tax cuts and the wars was put on emergency basis for the purpose of hiding the costs. so i'm pleased that we're coming around to a more reasonable position today, and i hope that we're going to find a common path forward on many of these issues. mr. johnson, you state in your testimony that low unemployment depresses tax revenue, and this is the mayor reason for -- major reason for our current deficits and why they're so large. once the economy recovers fully and the unemployment rate is lowered, it certainly will take some of the pressure off of these discussions. acknowledging there are long-term challenges we have to address. i've opinion making this point inside of my own -- i've been making this point inside of my own caucus not to overreact to the situation we find ourselves, and if we could find that point forward that i referenced, we'd find you could have a conversation that would be worthwhile past the political talking points. now, getting americas back to work should be the nu

will extend the debt ceiling for three months to allow time for the united states senate to write a budget so we can then begin the discussions on how we're going to repay this money that we're going to borrow as well as begin to manage down the debt long term. >> what's the realistic vision in terms of a budget? i mean, this senate will have its budget plan, the house will have its bucket? should the people believe at some point soon we should get a budget for the country. >> i hope that we can. in the house we're committed to producing a budget that will balance in ten years, and this will be a significant shift from the kind of budget that we have produced before. we're dealing with a new baseline after the cliff deal, and i think there's a growing urgency amongst the people in the country to say, you know what? it's time for washington to start living within its means and high time for the federal government to get control of the unfund liabilities in the entitlement programs the way so many private sector industries have done. >> let me say on this ten-year idea for a moment. you've got

get rid of the debt ceiling? it's a real brawl. >> just deep six that sucker like no other country deals with this it ottic device. hey, i'm going to borrow some money, but i'll think twice over whether i'm going to pay the bill when it comes. >> what if it was the founding father himself who said i think we ought to have a debt ceiling so as to avoid fiscal recklessness? >> well, in fact, the debt ceiling, the reason we have one is because up until 100 years ago, we voted on every bond issue individually. so you think it's bad now, just imagine if we had had that situation. but looking forward, though, this is very much yesterday's story. it was interesting that the reason the dow took this latest jump upwards was because the house a couple of weeks ago signaled they weren't going to have a fight over the debt ceiling. now, people need to focus on the fact that the next big tripwire is the sequester. i think markets got a little bit complacent the one second. >> we want to talk about the federal reserve, as well. let's recap what the fed did. they kept their $85 billion bond buyin
